Let’s start a New Year – 2013 Practice. How about you take a process, any process and give it a fresh review?
Sit with your group and talk about the things that you do. Discuss them openly and without bias. Choose something that someone thinks might be done a little bit better. Have them take responsibility for a review of that process in the coming week with a report back to the group the following Friday. Then select a new one the following week and so on.
At the end of the year you will have had fifty two processes reviewed. The priority will have come from the group itself not you and one of your team members will have led the review and reported the findings back to the group. This should result in more engaged and motivated team members. They will all have their fingertprints all over everything that you do as a team.
The time is now.
